. >> if it was an intentional dismissal, using race in that way, it just heightens the level of sinisterness of such a comment and it belies in many ways the truth of who colin powell is. >> let's play a clip from president obama today. this is what he said about it. >> any suggestion that general powell would make such a profound statement in such an important election based on anything other than what he thought was what's going to be best for america i think doesn't make much sense. >> sununu issued a statement afterwards which i found fairly laughable. colin powell's a friend, i respect the endorsement decision he made. i do not doubt it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. piers morgan's question was whether colin powell should leave the party and i don't think he should. it doesn't allude to what he said at all, trying to sort of reframe it as if somehow, what he was saying was he doesn't doubt it was based on anything but support for the policies. of course he doubted it. he was making it very clear to my viewers that this was about the color of his skin. >> look, that's n
